There was once a time when you wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without straightening every inch of your hair.  But thanks to the increasing popularity of beach inspired and bedhead hair, the constant feeling of needing your GHD is now a thing of the past.

As the fashion shifts from soft waves to sea salt laden curls, it seems simply adding texture to your hair is no longer enough as a New York-based hairstylist has told Marie Claire “sexture” is now what your mop wants.

Kat Zemtsova says this look is “all about imperfection” and has described it as “the antithesis of stiff waves or sausage curls” – so it’s basically about letting your hair be messy af but in a super sexy kinda way.

The hair artist recommends using a wave spray on wet hair before giving it a good tousle as it dries naturally or adding a dry texturizing spray to the mids and ends of your mane if it hasn’t seen the shower in a few days.

So if you're in a minimal effort kind of mood but still fancy looking like Gigi, why not give sexturizing a go?

Earlier this year, an unretouched photo of supermodel Cindy Crawford posing for Marie Claire magazine went viral, appearing on countless websites around the world.

The photo, supposedly a "pre-Photoshop" version of an image that appeared in Marie Claire Latin America's December 2013 issue, was praised by many for showing what a "real" body looks like, even that of a world-famous model.

Now though, Cindy has spoken out about the leaked photo for the first time, and admits she felt "blindsided" by the whole affair.

The 47-year-old model claims the image was digitally manipulated to enhance any normal flaws even further, and that it wasn't an accurate representation of her body. "That picture didn’t reflect what I saw when I looked in the mirror—even in the worst dressing-room lighting," she tells Elle Canada.

"It was stolen and it was malicious."

Despite believing that the image had been altered, Cindy says she felt under pressure to appear unfazed by having her flaws on show to the whole world.

"I was very conflicted, to be honest," she admits. "It put me in a tough spot: I couldn’t come out against it because I’m rejecting all these people who felt good about it, but I also didn’t embrace it because it wasn’t real – and even if it were real, I wouldn’t have wanted it out there."

The mum-of-one adds that the photo definitely put a dent in her confidence. "I know my body, and I know it’s not perfect, but maybe I have a false body image; maybe I think I look better than I do. I think that most women are hard on themselves," she says.

At the time of the image's publication, celebrity photographer John Russo released a statement claiming it was "a fraudulent altered version" of the originally published photo.

While she was far from happy that the image was ever circulated, Cindy says she can understand why so many women took comfort from it.

"Somehow seeing a picture of me was like seeing a chink in the armour. Whether it was real or not isn’t relevant, although it’s relevant to me."


Miley Cyrus has probably become one of the most outspoken celebrities of her generation.

Now she’s opening up about how the TV show that launched her career and sent her directly into the media spotlight as had drastic effects on her mental state.

Playing a teen pop star who lived a double life was apparently not all that fun for the real Miley. In the latest issue of Marie Claire the 22-year old opens up about how much her childhood career affected her self-esteem.

“I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia.” She told the magazine, “I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, Who the f— am I?”

She said the wardrobe she donned every day gave her misconceptions about what was perceived as beautiful.

“You’re a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing.”

She says that at the time she was still a “fragile little girl” who was covered in make-up.

Her mom, she says, even considered having lights brought in so to help Miley cope with the long gruelling hours she worked. Miley suffers from seasonal affective disorder which was apparently made worse by working on studio sets from 2006 to 2011.

Miley said that she had to persevere through the tough times:

“I just had to keep going, be tough, be strong. Everything happened to me on that set.”

Now, Miley has become a spokesperson for LGBTQ rights, is supposedly dating Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell and she will be hosting this year’s VMAs. She’s definitely not letting her past experiences hold her back then.  

She also talked about friend Caitlyn Jenner in the interview. Miley has dismissed claims that Caitlyn transitioned for fame, calling the idea "insane". 

She said: "Caitlyn has to tell her story, because if she doesn’t, everyone else is going to tell it for her.”

which isn't surprising considering Miley was one of the first celebrities so show support for Cait on social media after her Vanity Fair cover was revealed to the world.
